A symposium organized by the Cochrane IBD Group and presented at the 2017 Digestive Disease Week annual meeting reviewed the recent literature on several controversial topics in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) management including the efficacy of oral aminosalicylates for induction and maintenance of Crohn's disease (CD), the feasibility of drug withdrawal in patients with quiescent CD, and strategies for detecting colon cancer in patients with IBD. This article summarizes the data presented at that session.
